Man Takes More than 1,000 flights Without Leaving the Airport

Mr.Mul

For more than twenty years, he flew to a different European city — every Wednesday. He never missed a week. Mr Mul (born in 1932) made more than 1,000 flights over a period of 20 years.

Travel is what you make it. In the early days of my travel quest to visit every country, I would get defensive when people asked why I only stayed in most countries for a relatively brief period of time. Unlike this guy, I left the airport and usually spent several days in a place—but still, I totally get why someone would love flying for the sake of flying.

It was all about an experience, about losing himself in the window seat and venturing to a different place. No matter that the place was “air world.” Some of us like air world just fine.

For every person who does something like this, I bet there are many more who have a similar idea but never follow through. Maybe they decide that it’s silly, or maybe they try it a couple of times before stopping.

But this story shows that you don’t have to stop. If you find something that brings you joy, embrace it and call it your own.
